Hi, I'm trying to write a load testing type system and so my first port of call was to increase the number of connections to 65535.
So, I ./configure --with-maxconnections=65535, re-make, run the IRCd, get errors regarding how many open files I'm allowed, become root, run `ulimit -n 65535', re-run the IRCd and it starts up successfully.
Then my load tester isn't able to create > 1021 connections, without anyone else "on", and even with some connection delays.
What's... going on here?
